Audio Tracks 

Still Born is an animated documentary about longing for a child but loosing her at birth.
The story is put together with 2D-animations, sometimes mixed with filmed images and 3D-animations. The mother tries in different ways to accept that her child will not live, and also reflects upon how women in her situation were treated some 40 years ago.
The film raises questions about life and death, and how to come to terms with an unacceptable loss.
